Heal the nation, abolish the House of Lords

In one of those “careful what you wish for” unintended consequences, anti-Brexit agitators may have unleashed constitutional reforms with a wider reach than dreary negotiations about the product labels and border control (how anyone gets worked up about leaving the EU is one of life’s big mysteries, for me).

Every claim made in the 1997 election by the Labour Party was scrupulously checked, pre-release, by a committee … → Read More

Build, baby, build – dig up those green fields: we need a new generation of New Towns

Perhaps there is light at the end of the anti-capitalist tunnel. Mark Carney is using language sharp enough to penetrate the ears of even the most ostrich-like banker: "Bankers made enormous sums in the run-up to the crisis and were often well compensated after it hit. In turn, taxpayers picked up the tab for their [...] → Read More
